I have to agree with Dan here. That argument doesn’t hold much water. That’s like saying you can’t walk on my sidewalk, because I had to pay for the concrete, and I pay to maintain it.
If you take a trip to West Virginia, take note of the signs around highway construction. If the work is extensive enough, there will be information on where the money comes from. In my experience, half of the money comes from the federal and state gumm’ts, and half from the state’s (relatively high) gas tax.
